    I resigned a game recently as white in game # 12258664. My endgame skills are no better than average, but it seemed that I was going to be backed into a no win situation anyway. Should I have resigned? Was there something I overlooked?

    P.S. My apologies, but I'm still struggling with how get the game link in the forums section. I've read the instructions, but the termanology is a bit out of reach.

    Looks to me like K-d3, K-c5, K-c3 keeps the bad guys out, just keep cycling that and it is a draw.

    Instead of K-c5, Kd6, then Ke6 and push the f pawn, bad guys break through but always worth making them prove the win.

    Looks lost, I would have played on just to see how it went. If you want a quick analysis, I think your last bad move (which cost your game) was on move 32. Be3, leaves you in a losing end game.

    Personally I think moving the pawn to c7 would have kept you in the game, with advantage. It should tie the knight down.
